EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Additive Manufacturing
Online Event

In cooperation with

Lasers benefit advanced and additive manufacturing throughput increase and energy-consumption reduction. In this meeting, we will discuss the challenges to further manufacturing optimisations in several fields, the different needs and requirements of each application, which materials will drive the industry in the next years and how photonics, robotics, and further laser-related developments can support in this endeavor.
